Let's continue the day with some Vocal Jazz classics, The Hi-Lo's.
Heard of them? If you have, what are you doing checking my blog, grandma? Remembber to take your pills. Kisses.
And for those of you who haven't, they were inspiration for many Doo-Wop groups, Pop musicians and other Vocal Jazz musicians that would then inspire even more young musicians and ultimately shape the music that we listen to today.
Today's song should be an easier one to listen to for the average set of ears, give Some Minor Changes a listen.
Contrary to what Youtube would like you to believe, the above song is much shorter than 5 minutes. The song is barely 3 minutes long. It's amazing how after just 3 minutes I feel like saying gee-whiz!
I'm well aware they're not everyone's cup of tea, so if you prefer some Hip-Hop, have them sampled by the Jurassic 5 in The Influence.
But if you did like it, why not check out the album for an occasional listen?
This is a once every 3 months listen for me. I appreciate the impact they had and how they helped make what music is, but taking in too much of that blast from the past makes me want to dress like my great grand pappy. And that tends to freak people out a little.
All the same, you'll enjoy The Hi-Lo's And All That Jazz if you like the earlier Doo-Wop sounds, and might enjoy them even more so if you like intricate vocal layering. They were no amateurs.
